The Hacker Dojo’s Saint Patrick’s Day Fire Escape Race!
Help Hacker Dojo comply with fire code by transversing one mile for charity! Some will run, some will walk, some will stumble, but in the spirit of Bay to Breakers and Saint Patrick’s Day, please come join us in raising money from the dojo! Hilarious costumes or underwear are preferred, though the more timid can just wear green, and much beer will be affiliated with these adventures.
Update: We crossed 40 expected runners for race day! Thank you so much everybody for your support!
Why should I donate to run around in my underwear? I can do that at home.
- To help save the dojo
- To help generate press for the dojo
- Because we’re going to feed you lots of beer
- Because we are going to have awesome dojo swag
- Because if we get enough people we want to do little prizes
This sounds awesome, but do I have to run…a whole mile?
No, the goal here is to have fun, not to set a bar for athletic achievement. There will be tricycles with speakers on them playing “I’m Sexy and I Know It” and Lady Gaga, and they will require people to ride them. For the particularly athletically adverse, there will also be beer and probably a bake sale at the dojo, so just grab a spectator ticket, show up in your underwear and party if you prefer! You can also still sponsor a runner/walker/stumbler on a per-mile basis!
Only one mile?
First, congrats on being in better shape than me. Secondly, if you’d like to do a walkathon/runathon, you can sign up to be sponsored per mile. Email [email protected] with your name and if you are running or walking, and we will sign you up.
How serious is this race?
We’re extremely serious about having a good time
Wait, it doesn’t take that long to run a mile…
The event will go like this: we will show up and drink and party, then we will run our mile, then we will drink and party more. This is why it is a longer event than it takes to run one mile.
What sorts of underwear and costumes are permitted?
We encourage people to be creative, and if you’re shy, always remember that you can just support the dojo while wearing green! For the more adventurous, we’re setting some minimums with the Mountain View Public Nudity Laws:
